Groundwork for the Rider Exercises

^ I found that site, which has alot of cool things, but i do know that everyone here has some kind of fault when riding, so here is some 'groundwork' for us, before we get into the saddle :)

It give's exercises for :

1. Balancing on the reins.
2. Collapsing on one side of the body.
3. Rolling forward with the shoulders.
4. Riding with your legs too far forward or too far back.
5. Leaning on the inside or outside of the saddle.

We should create a goal, and alittle work out plan, and post here everyday to say if we reached our goal, what we did, how many we did(goal pretty much) and other exercises we did for riding.

Enjoy !

I got sucked into an infomercial and order The Firm Wave this morning. I'm hoping it will help my core and my balance!

What a great idea! I haven't ridden since october, so I probably have ALL those problems lol. I will start when my cramps go away.

LOL! Luvmyperch we must have been watching the same infomercial because I ordered it too! Swore I'd never get sucked in again, but here I go. The Firm is a great workout (have the original) so thought it might actually be worth it. Good luck to us both! :wink:

Good to know I'm not the only one. Now I've got to wait for the ground to harden up just a whisker so I don't chew it up getting the horses to solid ground to ride. In the meantime, I'm trying to get my fat **** in shape for riding season. So close and yet.....
